Windham Construction was Birmingham’s leading African-American construction company during the first half of the 20th Century. The company was founded in 1895 by Thomas C. Windham, and in 1897 his brother Benjamin Windham joined the operation. Together with notable local architect Wallace Rayfield, Windham constructed many significant buildings within the city including the 16th Street Baptist Church, the Pythian Temple, the Windham Building and the Trinity Baptist Church in the early 20th Century.
